Released Murderer: ‘We Don’t Regret What We Did’

Released prisoner: "[In prison] we'd chat, talk, eat, drink, joke and play throughout the day."

palestinian prisoner

By Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Israel recently released 52 of 104 imprisoned terrorists to accommodate the Palestinian Authority’s precondition to return to negotiations. Palestinian Media Watch documented that the terrorists, who were all murderers, were received by the PA leadership as heroes. As part of its ongoing glorification of the terrorists, PA TV interviewed Asrar Samrin who was serving a life sentence for the murder of Israeli Tzvi Klein (Dec. 3, 1991). The murderer explained that “the first question all Israeli media ask every released prisoner is: ‘Do you regret what you did or not?’” His answer was:

“Through the great PA TV, I say to the Israelis: There is no Palestinian who did something for the homeland and his nation who will regret it. We don’t regret what we did and we will not regret what we did.”



In another PA TV interview earlier this year, a prisoner who was released after having served 10 years explained how prisoners spend their time. In a striking statement that contradicts the Palestinian Authority libel about cruel conditions in Israeli jails, the prisoner explained that the “worst thing about Israeli prison” is when prisoners are transported on the prison bus and have to sit for a long time on a metal chair:

“The worst thing about Israeli prison is the torturous ride… when a man is driven to court or to the hospital or on any ride outside the prison… We prisoners call this ‘ride of torment’… This is beyond imagination… It it’s hard to convey the suffering. The prisoners sit on a metal chair, made entirely of metal, there’s nothing but metal inside it.”

    Has the look of murderous druggy lunatic!!!!

  2. The State of Israel must kill all the Arab terrorists, including those who are imprisoned, because the Arab terrorists are making war against Israel, so that they are war enemies, and it is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded Israel to kill all the war enemies. The war enemies must be killed immediately, and not submitted to trial. The State of Israel must kill the Arab terrorists, instead of arresting them.

  3. Cody Flecker says:

    Is there any doubt as to why Jews and Christians are afraid to settle in Israel? Lunatics like this one are released so that they can kill again. Israel is run by insane politicians. My advice to all is to stay away from Israel. Do not settle there, nor live there.

  4. Wendell Newman says:

    Yet America still holds Polland in prison. He never murdered anyone or was a terrorist. Shame.

  5. Walter Richards says:

    "The prisoners sit on a metal chair, made entirely of metal, there’s nothing but metal inside it.”

    Future murderous terrorists should sit on a wooden oak chairs.
    That's what electric chairs are made of. But make sure they're reconnected.

  6. Yechiel Baum says:

    seems the prisoners had a better life than living in Gaza and earned higher pay.
    The guy on top picture looks like a member of Arab Obama's family,
